Obsidian is one of the resources available in the New World.
High Elves, Lizardmen and Dark Elves all produce Carved Obsidian instead of obsidian. It is functionally the same, and even shares the same icon.
It takes an artisan to carve and fashion obsidian. Dark Elves are the true masters of this art, although others have produced fine pieces too.
